Okkervil River: the Stage Names Bonus Disc

Okkervil River's new album, the Stage Names, was released today to glowing reviews. I would HIGHLY recommend that you purchase this record as soon as possible, because there is a limited edition currently available with a bonus disc featuring solo acoustic versions of every song on the record. Personally, I like the acoustic disc better. Will Sheff has never been as unguarded and poetic, and the intimacy of the acoustic disc is incredibly disarming.

John Allyn Smith Sails (Solo Acoustic) Beach Boys fans will love the "Sloop John B" refrain
